11.07.2021 23:30 i've been trying to learn the unicyle recently. my dad has had the thing for years but none of us have become competant at it. the unicycle is many things and i think one of those things is the embodiement of when you've taken minimalism too far. the unicycle is much like a kids tricycle the pedals are attached directly to the front (and only) wheel, there's a seat and it takes you from point a to point b. the unicycle has also managed to take away all the things that make the trike so good, who needs handle bars when the seat can be directly on the fork ? who needs 3 wheels when you can have just one ? why steer with moving parts when you can steer with your body ? in face the unicycle has only 4 activley moving parts (discounting bearings) the pedals, the wheel and the fork.
